Reuben's baby blessing outfit that I made!

     Today was Reuben's baby blessing day!  I am not sure why but minutes before Weston took Reuben up to the front to bless him my heart was pounding, I was so nervous!!  I think it is kind of funny how I get so nervous about these things when I am not even the one blessing the baby.

Post Church/Blessing family picture.  This is the best we could get of Sage.  Also we are at my friend Audrey's house for our luncheon with family.  Thank you so much Audrey!!

I decided about a month ago that I should make him his little baby blessing outfit so I got on pinterest and found this tutorial (since you know how much I love tutorials, you can see some dresses I've made for Sage using tutorials here) and Weston and I thought it was such a cute little white sailor outfit that it was the one!
Sorry the pictures aren't that great (white on white) but all my walls are white and I didn't know where else to take it.

I improvised and made his have long sleeves and pants since it is winter time.

      I used white material with a paisley design on it since my husband loves paisley so much!  Also I am a bit of a procrastinator and I didn't start making this one until Friday and finished it last night around midnight.  
      This one was the second one I made because the first one ended up being way too big and it actually fits Sage around the neck so I had to start over.  When I realized I was going to have to start over I called my Mom and asked if she would come and help me with the kids while I sewed!  She thankfully said yes, I wouldn't have been able to get it done without her help.
I may just add some sleeves and a skirt to make a dress for her.

And here's my cute boy in his cute little sailor blessing outfit!
He is getting rather chubby these days.

Sibling love!

Cute little Reuben Hinckley.  P.S. he has been holding his head up like this since he was born.  He is crazy strong.  In fact his kicks while I was pregnant would stop me in my steps and make me want to cry.

Also, last night Weston, Reuben, and I got to participate in the Fountain Green, Ut live Nativity as Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus.  Mary is my biggest role model.  When I think of her I want to be a better person.  I want the Lord to find favor in me like he found favor in her.  I love it how Nephi in the Book of Mormon describes her as the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.  I love it how she was worthy to be chosen as the Mother of the Savior.  I want to be like her.  This was a wonderful opportunity and it gave me time to reflect on how she must of felt and who she was.  Also I thought of Joseph and how special he was and how strong of a man he must have been.  And I watched my little baby boy and thought about how special he is and also how wonderful it must have been for Mary to look at her new baby boy. It also reminded me of this special video as Reuben would hold my fingers. It was such a neat experience that I will cherish forever!

Love, Becky joy
